How to choose the right canopy from the sun

In the summer, autumn and at any other time of the year weQuite often we think about protection from the sun. We can protect ourselves, but we must not forget about our houses. In addition to blinds and curtains, which we used to use in the interior, there are also sun protection systems used outside. It is believed that the use of street awnings or blinds is a more effective solution, since thus preventing the heating of window panes. And as a consequence - there is no transfer of stored heat inside the room. We offer to consider several types of awnings andoutdoor blinds that can be used to protect a summer cottage or a country house from the sun. At any time of the year, even in winter, there will be no problem to collect them before warm sunny days. Types of awnings Awnings on windows can be of different types, with or without decorative elements. Outwardly, they can become both a color continuation of the facade of the house, and it is great to play in contrast. Such awnings are controlled using a special cord that can be installed both outside and inside the premises. For convenience, an electric motor is sometimes used to be able to open or close all awnings at once. Marquisolettes Marquisolettes are suitable for tallwindows. Their upper part is parallel to the frame, and the lower part forms a certain angle that allows you to protect the entire window from the sun, while not completely covering it with material. That is, nothing will prevent you from admiring the view from the window. Basket awnings Basket awnings we are used toseen on the facades of hotels. They can be used on arched and rectangular windows, complementing classic architectural forms with their appearance. And of course, they can be collapsed and expanded whenever you want. Ruslan Kirnichansky, architect: - When choosing a shed, you need to determine what goal you are pursuing. For example, if you want to block out the sunlight but not block out the view from the windows, awnings are best for this, which can be adjusted according to the movement of the sun. If the goal is to create darkening and protect the windows from rain, basket awnings will do. Terrace ones are good because they organize a recreation area in the shade on the site and they can be mounted to the walls. But do not forget that with the onset of cold weather the awnings must be removed, otherwise you will have to buy others for the next summer season. Terrace awnings Similar designs cannot only protect the interior from the sun. There are special terrace awnings that serve as a canopy. Under it, you can comfortably spend time in the fresh air. If the design of a country house does not imply a terrace, it can be easily replaced with awnings. Moreover, in rainy weather or in winter, such a structure is assembled and is not an obstacle to the small amount of sunlight that nature pleases us with at this time. Anna Samokhina, Hunter Douglas: - Window awnings to 65% reduce the flow of solar heat from the south side of the building and up to 77% from the western side. This is quite high indicators, for interior blinds and curtains, they are much lower. It is not necessary to use them on all windows of the house, it is quite appropriate to install marquises only on that window, which receives an excessive amount of light at a certain time of the day. In the assembled form they are absolutely not striking. It is also important to consider that the awnings made of light-colored fabric reflect more sunlight.
